Austin Lammers: How does it feel to beat a Pac-12 team at home?
Mehana Fonseca: It’s pretty unreal. Last year we played Hawaii and Utah and we kinda cracked under the pressure, but we had a ‘refuse to lose’ mindset when we got on the court.
AL: What’s your favorite dish at Cafe Brule?
MF: I love their prosciutto omelet for breakfast.
MF: What’s your favorite drill at practice?
LS: I love this game called Hand-to-Hand Combat. You play three-on-three and you have to get first contact with your hand. It’s really competitive and really fun.
MF: Do you have game day superstitions?
MF: I have to wear our black warm-up shirts and I have to wear a bun because every time I’ve worn a ponytail we’ve lost.
AL: Besides win, what’s the one thing you can do to make Coach Williamson smile?
MF: I tell her the story of when my science teacher called me a boy. She thinks it’s the funniest story ever.
